We Suck

I decided not to blog. Several people had encouraged me to start, I looked into it, but decided against it. No offense to bloggers, I just decided it wasn’t for me. Then I was asked again, but this seemed different. It wouldn’t be “my” blog – I would be a contributing blogger – and the blogs would be for church planters – and my topic would be evangelism. Well, my favorite topic is evangelism, my favorite people are church planters, and my favorite thing to contribute to are blogs. Okay, that last part isn’t true, but the first two are. So I said yes.

Here’s the goal for my blogging: Honesty. I’m not worried about me. I can and will be honest.

I’m worried about you.

Can you be honest? No offense, I mean I don’t even know you, but I’m not sure you can. If you can’t be honest, then I’ll be wasting my time on this, and I don’t have any time to waste. So, do me a favor – do yourself a favor – and, most importantly, do God a favor, and let’s be honest.

Ready to start? Here we go: We absolutely suck at reaching people who are far from God. There are lots of things our churches do well, but if we’re being honest, leading lost people to Jesus is not one of them. Can I prove that? Well, if we’re being honest I don’t think I even have to. But yes, I think I can prove it. And I’ll do it tomorrow…

Until then, you don’t have to go home but you’ve got to get up outta here.
